Driving in the rain is usually pretty therapeutic, unless you're driving in San Francisco because thats probably more scary than any haunted house or horror movie I've experienced. Of course, this didn't stop me from driving from the North Bay to photograph M83, who made me forget the horrors of stoping at the top of slippery San Francisco hills and walking a mile in the rain once I finally found parking near the Bill Graham Auditorium.
The whole show was basically one giant dance party and the bands live energy was contagious. I still can't get the bands newest single " Do It, Try It," out of my head. Even the calmer songs like "Wait," off Hurry Up, We're Dreaming had the crowd chanting and cheering.
Growing up, I had photos of Good Charlotte plastered all over my binder. In true eight grade fashion, I listened to The Young and The Hopeless on repeat as though the album's home was in my cheap white boombox covered in band stickers. It was nostalgic photographing a band I listened to in my early teens. The most surprising part was seeing people my age running around moshing and crowd surfing.
